    1990 Chevy Silverado C3500 2 wheel drive ext cab 1 ton flatbed dually. This truck is very clean and in great shape for being almost 25 years old and had spent most of its life in Texas. Truck has the strong running 454 big block engine with the 400 turbo automatic transmission. I was told by the previous owner that the truck was in their family since new and the motor was replaced shortly after the truck was purchased new at the dealer due to a recall by GM. Transmission has been rebuilt by previous owner with shift kit installed. Truck runs and shifts great and will pull just about anything.

    New items since I have owned the truck:
    *Replaced plugs/wires/cap/rotor in Fall 2013
    *Replaced oil pressure sending switch in Fall 2013
    *Painted and installed NEW 2" steel cowl induction hood in Fall 2013 ($700)
    *Installed NEW Hillsboro steel flatbed and all L.E.D. lights with NEW steel Dee Zee under bed tool boxes on both sides in Winter 2013 ($3,000)
    *Installed new custom built heavy duty steel rear bumper with hitch ($800)
    *Installed new electric brake controller in Winter 2013
    *Painted and installed new grille and smooth style bumper in Spring 2014 ($450)
    *Sandblasted and powder coated wheels in Spring 2014 ($200)
    *Installed 4 new rear tires in Spring 2014
    *Installed new style tow mirrors in Spring 2014
    *Replaced hydro boost unit, power steering pump and hoses in Spring 2014
    *Replaced radiator and front sway bar bushings in Summer 2014
    *Front end alignment Winter 2015

    Items that need replaced or repaired
    *Needs new valve cover gaskets
    *A/C line has hole in it and needs replaced
    *Will need new front tires at some point due to improper wear (this is why I had the front end aligned recently)
    *Door hinge pins on driver side need replaced (I have the parts)
    *Door key locks need replaced. I never received door keys from previoius owner (I have the parts)

    Asking $6,200 obo

    Located near Davenport, Iowa

    1990 was the last year for the TH400 in a GM full size. Hence, the truck having a TH400 automatic. Very nice truck, must be reliable as hell with that motor and trans.

    it is indeed a TH400 automatic.

    $6200 is a starting price. I dumped a crap load of money into the truck over the last couple years to build it the way I wanted. Initially I was going to build it into a show/work truck. Book values, vehicle comparisons, etc, can pretty much be thrown out the window. I've seen newer truck in worse shape for more money, and I have seen older ones in better shape for more. What I wont do is settle for $2500 or even $4500. Just saying.

    THanks for the compliments though.
